Danish/Brazilian garage-rock explosion THE COURETTES have announced another UK tour with a brand new video.
'Misfits & Freaks' is a new recording of a track from the duo's current album Back In Mono, which came out last year through Damaged Goods.
“'Misfits & Freaks' is a song about a bittersweet concert we played on the very evening France went into its first lockdown in 2020,” explains singer/guitarist Flavia Couri. “The pandemic broke loose in the middle of our tour and uncertainty was in the air. It felt a bit like being in a kind of science fiction film. People were partying that day as if there was no tomorrow. And it was indeed the end of the world as we knew it.
"We tried to capture this feeling in the video featuring some old b-movie apocalyptic scenes, while we keep on partying, singing, and dancing at the end of the world. We´ve all been struggling to keep ourselves sane, safe, strong, and sweet in the last two years. And we did it. Cheer up!”
Available on limited edition white 7" vinyl, you can pre-order 'Misfits & Freaks' here.
